a statement on the debt ceiling. >> because the debt ceiling is the fight coming up next, as you know, brian, and everything the president would like to do at the start of that second term including new gun laws, immigration reform, energy. all those things will really be locked into place unless he can get some agreement on the debt, the president said he won't negotiate with congress about the debt ceiling, but we could be headed to another standoff, another kind of fiscal cliff similar to what we saw last summer unless that can be resolved. the president wants to get ahead of that, really put the responsibility on republicans in congress and make it clear he just doesn't want to budge. >> keep in mind the president will walk behind you any moment. there is a very thin line between leverage coming off an election and lame duck status, and the president has a robust agenda for this term number 2. >> it is, and the first year of second terms are the ones you have a shot as sitting president to have the most productive parts. but i want to go back and emphasize something david said, and that
